AGENCY:

U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

ACTION:

Notice of pending NRC action to submit an information collection request to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and solicitation of public comment.

SUMMARY:

The NRC is preparing a submittal to OMB for review of continued approval of information collections under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

Information pertaining to the requirement to be submitted:

1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 313, “Application for Materials License” and NRC Forms 313A (RSO), 313A(AMP), 313A(ANP), 313A(AUD), 313A(AUT), and 313A(AUS).

2. Current OMB approval number: 3150-0120.

3. How often the collection is required: There is a one-time submittal of the NRC Form 313 (which may include the NRC Form 313A series of forms) with information to receive a license. Once a specific license has been issued, there is a 10-year resubmittal of the NRC Form 313 (which may include the NRC Form 313A series of forms) with information for renewal of the license. Amendment requests are submitted as needed by the licensee.

There is a one-time submittal for all limited specific medical use applicants of a NRC Form 313A series form to have each new individual identified as a Radiation Safety Officer (RSO), authorized medical physicist, authorized nuclear pharmacist (ANP), or authorized user or a subsequent submittal of additional information for one of these individuals to be identified with a new authorization on a limited specific medical use license.

NRC Form 313A(RSO) is also used by medical broad scope licensees when identifying a new individual as an RSO or adding an additional RSO authorization for the individual. This submittal may occur when applying for a new license, amendment, or renewal.

NRC Form 313A(ANP) is also used by commercial nuclear pharmacy licensees when requesting an individual be identified for the first time as ANP. This submittal may occur when applying for a new license, amendment, or renewal.

4. Who is required or asked to report: All applicants requesting a license, amendment or renewal of a license for byproduct or source material.

5. The number of annual respondents: 15,122 (2,364 NRC licensees and 12,758 Agreement State licensees).

6. The number of hours needed annually to complete the requirement or request: 65,308 (10,289 hours for NRC licensees and 55,019 hours for Agreement State licensees).

7. Abstract: Applicants must submit NRC Form 313, which may include the six forms in the 313A series, to obtain a specific license to possess, use, or distribute byproduct or source material. These six forms in the 313A series are: (1) NRC Form 313A(RSO), “Radiation Safety Officer Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation;” (2) NRC Form 313A(AMP), “Authorized Medical Physicist Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation;” (3) NRC Form 313A(ANP), “Authorized Nuclear Pharmacist Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation;” (4) NRC Form 313A(AUD), “Authorized User Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation (for uses defined under 35.100, 35.200, and 35.500);” (5) NRC Form 313A(AUT), “Authorized User Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation (for uses defined under 35.300);” and (6) NRC Form 313A(AUS), “Authorized User Training and Experience and Preceptor Attestation (for uses defined under 35.400 and 35.600).” The information is reviewed by the NRC to determine whether the applicant is qualified by training and experience, and has equipment, facilities, and procedures which are adequate to protect the public health and safety, and minimize danger to life or property.

Submit, by July 29, 2008, comments that address the following questions:

1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility?

2. Is the burden estimate accurate?

3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected?

4. How can the burden of the information collection be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?
